Bloomberg Quotes Schwartz on "Trial-Lawyer Earmarks"

SHB Partner Victor Schwartz weighed in on current efforts being made by U.S. trial lawyers to push plaintiff-friendly legislation through a Democratic Congress in a November 29, 2007, article. Titled "U.S. Trial Lawyers, Back on Offense, Take on Railroads, China," the article refers to recent efforts to limit arbitration in consumer-rights disputes, preserve anti-business state regulations and make it easier to bring lawsuits against Chinese manufacturers.  According to Victor, "This is trial lawyers working to enhance their revenue." He further characterized the legislative proposals as "trial-lawyer earmarks."
